Sepultura's Andreas Kisser: "The new album will be released at the end of 2016"


Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser was recently interviewed by Impact Metal Channel, you can read some excerpts below.

About the recently released Sepultura song "Under My Skin", which celebrates the band's 30th anniversary as well as pays homage to the band's fans, Andreas said: "That song is not a part of any album; it's something very specific for this year, a celebration of thirty years. And it's a gift to our fans who have a Sepultura tattoo. It's such a showing of great respect for the band, for the music, and I think it was the minimum that we could do, express that retribution of respect and love. And we wrote this specific song for them and we released it only on vinyl and digital; it's like a special collector's item."

About the progress of the songwriting sessions for the new Sepultura album, Andreas said: "The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart. The new album, we're gonna starting working on it now. Of course, I have a lot of riffs here and there. Eloy Casagrande also has some ideas. But we need really to start organizing and then get ready for practice and really develop the songs properly. But we're gonna take our time, probably for an end-of-2016 release."
